My mother is a phenomenal seamstress! I remember the jumpers, dresses and pinafores she made for me (and my Cabbage Patch doll!) growing up. She made my Daddy a three-piece suit, my sister-in-law's wedding dress and dresses for her bridesmaids. When people in the neighborhood needed alterations, they didn't go into town to the dry cleaners. They came to my Momma! You would think coming from such a background, I would possess such skills. Think again! I'm not sure I could even manage to turn a sewing machine on!
Maybe its not too late for me to learn. So, I'm starting with the basics - the very basics! Thank goodness for Youtube!
